Hi trucking world, well, where to start? Those of you who were on the truck show scene in the late 80’s/90’s will no doubt have come across a certain beautiful red Western Star called Lady Louise, owned by a man called Geoff Byford. I was a bit young at the time, but grew up hearing about this truck from my sister, who was a huge fan, and tells me how popular this old girl was throughout the trucking scene. Unfortunately, Geoff eventually sold Lady Louise, and she vanished from the show scene...which is a great shame.
The reason I am here is because, to my amazement, I have found her working as a circus promotion truck, for sale and not far from my home! My sister and I would absolutely love to buy the truck, paint her back to her former Lady Louise glory, and re-introduce her to the truck show scene, along with run her for events, weddings etc!
Unfortunately, although we have more than enough passion to complete this project...we can‘t financially do it alone, so I am here to ask for some help from the trucking community to stop this old girl simply vanishing again. Below is how she currently looks, in my opinion she is screaming out to have her lovely red paintwork back - as im sure you’ll all agree.
